Praise for THE KISS BOXAmazon.com Book of the YearAn Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award Winner"Debut picture-book author Verburg structures the story, inspired by her personal experience, with a steady, soothing pace. Cole complements the language beautifully with watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations evoking the classic joys of childhood. . . . Similar in subject matter to Audrey Penn's THE KISSING HAND, illustrated by Ruth E. Harper and Nancy M. Leak (1993), but a whole lot more artful, this fresh take will motivate younger children to create boxes of their own."--KIRKUS REVIEWS"Verburg handles her emotionally freighted material (based on personal experience, according to the endnote) with a light, patient touch, giving Little Bear's qualms their full due before introducing his solution."--PUBLISHERS WEEKLYPraise for the How Do Dinosaurs booksHOW DO DINOSAURS SAY GOOD NIGHT?An ALA Notable BookA SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL Best Book of the YearA BOOKLIST Editor's ChoiceA NEW YORK TIMES, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, and BOOKSENSE bestseller."A delight from start to finish; better buy more than one."--BOOKLISTHOW DO DINOSAURS GET WELL SOON?
